The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Writing is the gift that keeps on giving. Or at least it has the potential to do so. I’m not suggesting that everything we write will eventually become a “classic”, but one of the thrills of writing is that when we capture words on paper we might just create a story that will actively outlive us. One that readers will be enjoying years after we have left this life to be with our dear Lord.

The power of the written word is one reason to approach the calling and craft of writing with proper respect. I’m convinced we should write, not just for the “here and now” readers but for the “then and there” readers. I understand the way stories are told changes over time, and being alert to those changes is wise. But the exciting reality is that truth is timeless.

What truths do we believe are important to our generation? What truths do you assume will be needed in future generations?

I’d love to have you take a moment and answer these questions. Thanks.
